I've started working on the new designs from this year's Nashville Market and my first finish is from Little House Needlework....A Stitcher's Heart. I haven't done the finishing yet because I want to stitch the companion piece to this "Gentle Stitches" from Shakespeare Peddler.
They are both stitched with the same colors of Crescent Color floss but I'm doing them on different colors of Jobelan. The heart I've stitched on tan jobelan and the Gentle Stitches one will be stitched on Star Sapphire.
I read on the HDF forum that Simply Necessaries in Europe was having a great sale on their Gander Linen and I just had to take advantage of it. I've ordered cream, light blue, olive green 38ct. linen and I'll be sure to show you it once I get it. I absolutely love 38ct. Gander Linen and I do wish more shops here in the US would carry it.
Today has not been a good day for Vallie. I took her this morning to Petsmart for her monthly trim and bubble bath treatment. Well the guy who was doing the trimming cut her back and she required stitches. They have a vet right in the building who explained to me that she would have to be knocked out to do the stitching, so it was taken care of immediately and of course they are paying all the expenses but my baby has been hurt and I'm hurting too. I don't get to pick her up for another 2 hours and I really miss her. She's my buddy during the day and lays right beside me when stitching and if I'm in my sewing room, she has a bed in there where she lays till I'm finished. Needless to say she will be babied when I pick her up tonite.
I hope your day is going better.....
Blessings as always,
